Toronto blogs Frank Gehry: Art + Architecture

Some of the large models are truly breathtaking, like the interior models of the Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA. The show gives you some insight into the man's thought process and creativity and it's easy to see why his buildings have inspired a kind of fervour among city planners, architects and clients.

The models are incredible. I didn’t grasp the fidelity the models Gehry builds. They are amazing. You have to see this exhibit. I didn’t understand that Gehry builds these true to form models as part of his process. The models include finishing details, little people in the rooms, furniture. It’s incredible!
